    Hey there,

    Thank you for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline and posting to our forum. It sounds like you have been going through a lot at home and things have been getting overwhelming. No one deserves to have someone else's anger taken out on them. Thank you for sharing your story, it is very brave of you to reach out for help.

    It sounds like you don’t want to live with either of your parents. We aren't legal experts here at NRS, but generally speaking, if you do leave without your mother’s permission, she can legally call the cops who are authorized to take you home as it sounds like they have done in the past. There are ways to leave home legally through emancipation or child protective services. We can’t be sure of the outcome, but if you are interested, we are here to help you through either process. If you would like more information about abuse reporting you may want to check out www.childhelp.org. We are here to support you in whatever decision you make. It sounds like things have been really difficult and we want to make sure home is a safe place for you. If you ever feel unsafe, you can call the police right away to get help.

    You mentioned having some difficulty with mental health as well related to past abuse. We are sorry to hear that you have experienced abuse and have been struggling as a result. We would like to help. If you contact NRS by chat or by phone, we could connect you to resources in your area that may be helpful, such as counseling services, or if you ever just feel like you need someone to talk to. We are here for you 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    Again, we want to thank you for posting to our forum and encourage you to reach out again if you would like to talk more.

    We wish you all the best,

    NRS

    i don’t feel safe at home. as I have gotten older the less safe I have felt. My mom is very bipolar and has extreme anger issues and takes them out on me constantly. She’s almost constantly screaming at me for things I’m not responsible for and forces me to do all of her bidding including her laundry, my brothers room, etc. she screams at me if I don’t talk to her and complains I don’t combine in her but I’m in constant fear she is going to hurt me. I fear she is losing it. She screams at me when she misplaces things and blames me for all of her problems. I am almost 16 years old and have the right to choose which parent I want to live with and I stayed with my dad for one night and she flipped. She called the cops and forced me to come home. I cannot stand the constant neglectment im receiving here and the constant yelling because I have many mental disorders from her past lovers abuse. Including my father but I felt safer with him that one night than I ever do here. I don’t want to live with either of them and I don’t know what to do because she relies on me to babysit all the time.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.

    Hi There!

    First of all, thank you so much for reaching out to NRS today. We know it can take a lot of courage to do so, especially in such a difficult and scary situation. We are so sorry to hear that you don’t feel comfortable or loved at home. You do not deserve to live in a household where you are abused and feel unsafe.

    You mention that you are cutting yourself. We want you to know that our first priority here at NRS is that you are safe. If you are ever feeling like a danger to yourself, a good resource to reach out to is the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. They are available to talk and support you 24/7 at 800-273-8255.

    We understand it can be scary to reach out to CPS or call 911. If you do feel unsafe at home, however, making a report to Child Protective Services is definitely an option. Going to childhelp.org will help you understand how to make a report in your state. We are here to support you in this process as well if you want. If you do want help making an abuse report, you can reach out to us through live chat at 1800runaway.org or by calling us at 1-800-RUNAWAY(786-2929). If you want to reach out and just talk through the situation and hear about more resources even if you are not interested in making a report, we are happy to be here to support you through that as well.

    You do not deserve to feel unloved and we are here to help you as best as we can.

    Best of luck and stay strong,
    NRS

    I’m 13 and I don’t feel comfortable at home , I have 2 sisters but one of them moved away leaving my and my youngest sister . My parents treat her way different then me and no I’m not jealous ... no they don’t spoil her way more ... they just love her more . I’ve been abused by both of my parents and ever since then I haven’t talked to either one about my problems ... I haven’t told anyone . I just walk around with a fake smile on my face because when ever I seem sad or have a “attitude” they threaten to hit me .. no I’m not doing this to get attention .. I really wanna go somewhere I feel safer at ... today my teacher told me I “skipped” yesterday class but I really didn’t I was really late I didn’t keep track of time and we have a policy if your more then 5-10 mins late they have to mark you absent . I can’t just look at my parents and tell them why I wanna die or why I don’t feel safe or why I’m cutting myself or why I’m struggling with school ... whenever I look at them I seee that look ... the look that reminds me I’m a disappointment to them ... I’m scared to call cps or 911 . I need help ... she abuses me and nobody cares ...

    Hey,

    Thanks for reaching out to National Runaway SAfeline. It sounds like you are in a tough situation which is unfortunate. If we understand, something happened in class that made you get angry with a teacher and you are getting punished because of it.

    You may want to speak to your parents and explain what happened so that you and your parents really understand what happened. Also, you may want to think why you got mad and your and your parents can discuss talking to the teacher. Your parents could be very helpful in talking about it so that you are able to practice what you might want to say to the teacher.

    Hopefully this will help you think about the situation a little more. If you find that you would like to chat a bit more about your situation, please feel free to reach out to www.800runaway.org or on the phone at 1-800-Runaway (1-800-786-2929) to chat. Good luck and thanks again for reaching out to us!

    Hello there. Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. We know that it is sometimes really difficult to reach out for help. It sounds like the situation with your parents, specifically your dad, is really hard to deal with. Everyone deserves to feel loved by their family.

    In terms of your thoughts of killing yourself, a good place to reach out to is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. They are experts in talking about these kinds of thoughts and are available 24/7 at 800-273-8255.

    Another resource we offer here at NRS is the conference calling service. With this option, you would be able to call us, explain your situation, and a liner would help mediate a conversation with you and your parents. This may be a good way to confront your parents about how you’re feeling with the support of an outside resource. This option is completely up to you, but please do call us if you decide to do it.

    Lastly, if you want to talk about your situation more in depth, you are welcome to call or chat us 24/7. This way, we will hopefully be able to provide resources that are more specific to the situation you are going through. You can reach us by life chat on our website 1800runaway.org or call in at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    Best of luck,
    NRS

    Hey there. Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. We know that it can take a lot of courage to reach out for support, and we're glad you took that step. It sounds like you're going through a lot at the moment, and we're sorry to hear that things have been especially tough with your dad. It must feel pretty scary to hear him voice his opinions on the LGBTQ+ community knowing that you're apart of it.

    While we can't tell you exactly what you should do, it might be a good idea for you to try and talk with your mom about what's going on and how you're feeling. It's understandable to feel worried about doing so, but you might find it helpful to get it off your chest, find some support, and then potentially feel less inclined to runaway. If you have a hard time talking to mom, it can also help to write a letter or try and have someone you trust be apart of that conversation for added support, like a family member or a family friend.

    If you'd like to talk in more detail about what's going on or explore additional options, please feel free to reach out to us directly here at NRS. You can reach us by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY, or by chatting with us live at www.1800runaway.org. We're available 24/7 and are always happy to listen, and to help.

    Take care.

    Hi i’m 12 years old and my parents are in the process of getting a divorce so i switch back between my mom and dads house. My father has been spanking us but it seems like it goes to far. He keeps going and one time he spanked my sister for something she didn’t do after we told him that she doesn’t do that. On top of that he is always telling me that trans people are weird (i’m closeted) and he also thinks that all gay people go to hell and deserve to die (I’m bi) I really hate being here and want to talk to my mom but i’m scared. I also have frequent thoughts on running away. What should i do?
